New Forspoken Collection revealed

The new line brings fantastically-inspired modern gear to your wardrobe.

To celebrate the upcoming release of Forspoken, the team at Luminous Productions is excited to announce a brand new “Forspoken Collection” line. We’re thrilled to be able to finally be able to reveal this line up!

“The PlayStation Gear Store is excited to be a part of the official launch of the ”Forspoken Collection” – we have been working hard in partnership with Luminous Productions to get these pieces perfect for the community and we hope you all love them as much as we loved creating them.”

Gear inspired by Forspoken’s art direction

We’re excited about how everything turned out – particularly blending the Forspoken logo, added detail, and other various design elements. We love how the in-game inspiration of the designs were utilized to introduce modern aspects from a fantasy world.

While Forspoken is an intricately designed game with tons of surprises and detail, the core concept is “merging modern and fantasy”. The main story – Frey traveling from modern present day to a fantasy world – is a clear representation of this concept. In terms of art concept, we aimed to create a brand new identity of fantastical symbology and merge that with modern sensibilities.

T-shirt Logos and Coins: Gold as the Main Color

In the world of Forspoken, gold symbolizes magical power. Similarly in the modern world we live in, gold and magic have been deeply connected since ancient times. For example, alchemy involves the use of magic to create gold. Plus, economically speaking gold is inherently valuable which will always make it special to humans. We tapped into the magic of gold as a main color in creating the universe of Forspoken.

This new line’s t-shirt and coins let players bring some of Forspoken’s golden magic into their everyday lives.

Jacket: Emblem on Frey’s Pants

Do you recognize the emblem on this jacket? If so, you have a good eye! This emblem appears in-game on Frey’s jeans and is a subtle detail not everyone may have caught. The motif of this emblem is Frey’s right hand, which she uses to wield her magic.

Frey wears the emblem without knowing what it is while still living in modern day New York City, which hints that Athia may have been calling to her for some time. From a design perspective, Frey’s black jeans blend well among the fantasy world’s cloaks and belts. This emblem being on a real-life jacket is a nod to its original home on Frey’s jeans.

Pin Badges: Icons

These icons on the pin badges perfectly represent the merging of the modern age and fantasy. In terms of UI functionality, modern and simple icons are great, but icons also need to stylistically evoke a fantasy feel. We carefully merged these two seemingly opposing elements and designed the icons one by one.

The specific icons featured on the pin badges can also be seen in-game once Frey has discovered her magical abilities. These magic icons were inspired by signs Frey saw in modern New York City as well as her experiences within Athia.

This collection of Pin Badges lets players enchant their lives with stylish designs representing Frey’s most powerful abilities.

Forspoken launches January 24, 2023

Lastly, I’m excited that the day is almost here that I can share the artistic world of Forspoken, which we have been creating for such a long time. The Luminous Productions team and I hope you enjoy immersing yourself in the universe we have created.

Forspoken launches on PS5 on January 24, 2023.
